Where others may only see a bridge, Sundt sees an opportunity to improve infrastructure while saving money. Near Fair Oaks, Texas (just north of San Antonio), Sundt is replacing this bridge at FM 3351 (a small, local roadway) over Interstate 10 with a new, 164-foot-long, single-span bridge. Sundt’s project team developed a value engineering proposal to replace the original structural steel girder design with precast concrete girders. The idea was approved by the Texas Department of Transportation and will provide significant cost savings.
Sundt’s scope consists of demolishing the existing bridge, widening the I-10 frontage roads, and widening FM 3351. Additional duties include earthwork, drainage, structures, walls, asphalt paving, signage, and striping. The project will be completed in March.
